Long-Term Capital and Accommodation Plan

Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board is committed to providing programs and services to help each student achieve success. We do this by creating dynamic, inclusive educational experiences that develop capable, confident curious learners who thrive and contribute to their communities.

The Long-Term Capital and Accommodation Plan (Pdf) provides current and projected enrolment data, demographics, information about schools and community use of schools/facilities, and transportation. It is a living document containing projections for the next 10 years and is updated as required to reflect current data.

By referencing this report, discussions can take place regarding enrolment, additions or renovations to existing schools, building new schools, identifying schools for potential consolidation or relocation due to changes in curriculum, local demographics, facility needs and other factors.

This document will be referenced when planning for accommodation reviews under Policy 15: Student Enrolment/School Capacity: Pupil Accommodation Review (Pdf).

Trustees

Board of Trustees for 2018 to November 30, 2022

School board trustees are elected officials who are responsible for operating publicly-funded schools within their jurisdiction, and for the delivery and quality of educational programs and services. Legal accountability for Board decisions applies to the Board as a corporate entity rather than to individual trustees.

Trustees may be contacted regarding any questions, concerns or suggestions about the school within their jurisdiction or about education in general.

Student trustees for 2018-2019

Three student trustees are elected each year by the Student Senate to serve a one-year term on the Board. Student trustees participate in public school board meetings, represent student opinions at the Board level and participate actively on committees. Through student involvement at the Board level, Board members become aware of student issues and student opinions. Find out more on the Student Senate web page.

2018 Student Trustees Student Trustees Ryan Gentle, Trenton High School; Meera Moorthy, Eastside Secondary School; and Melissa Elliott, North Hastings High School represent the student voice at the Board table.

Access to information and privacy

Access to information and privacy

What is the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario (IPC)?

The Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario (IPC) is an independent oversight body. It’s role is to uphold and promote open government and the protection of personal privacy in Ontario. Individuals have a right to request that decisions on access to information requests made to the school board under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA), be reviewed by the IPC.

How do I make a formal request under MFIPPA?

You may make a request by completing a request form (pdf). Completed forms must include a $5 application fee paid by cash or cheque payable to Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board. Your request should provide as much detail as possible about the information you are requesting and be sent to the attention of the freedom of information officer.

How do I access general information?

General information about programs and services and contact information is posted on the board website. For access to more specific information, please contact Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board at 613-966-1170 or 1-800-263-4350. You will be directed to the department responsible for the records you are seeking. The appropriate department staff will determine if the records will be provided as a routine disclosure or if you should submit a request formally under MFIPPA.

How do I get a copy of my high school transcript?

Transcripts are provided by the school you attended. A list of schools and contact information is online. A small fee may be charged for this service; the school representative will confirm the amount.

NOTE: Transcripts for students who attended Belleville Collegiate Institute and Vocational Institute are provided by Quinte Adult Education.

Please be aware that the availability of transcripts may be limited during the summer months due to vacation schedules at secondary schools. Transcripts cannot be produced at the Education Centre, they must come from the school.

How do I access my/my child’s personal information?

Parents/guardians of students under age 18 can request access to information held by the school board by contacting the principal of the school their child attends or last attended. Please be aware that while an individual has access to their own personal information and general records, they do not have a right to access personal information about another individual. Staff must comply with the Municipal Freedom of Information Protection Act and the Education Act and will provide you with the information you request only if you are legally entitled to receive it. Students who are over age 18 may request copies of their records without parental consent.

How does HPEDSB collect and use personal student information?

Personal student information is collected directly from parents, guardians or students under the authority of the Education Act. Information collected will be used in accordance with the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act:

  1. for planning and delivering educational programs and services or for consistent purposes;
  2. by board employees who need access to the information in order to do their job;
  3. to comply with legislation or law enforcement; and/or
  4. in compelling circumstances affecting health or safety (with appropriate notice).

Notification of the collection and use of student information is indicated on the student registration form and updated annually through the student information form. Personal information collected and used for any other purpose requires consent of the parent, guardian or adult student.

What is personal information?

Personal information means any recorded information about an identifiable person including but not limited to race, nationality or ethnic origin, colour, religion, age, sex, education, medical, background, identifying number or symbol, address, telephone number, and personal views or opinions.

Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation

Canada’s Anti Spam Legislation

What is Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL)?

CASL is Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation which came into effect July 1, 2014. Its purpose is to minimize receipt of unsolicited electronic messages, whether in the form of email, text messages, social media or other means of telecommunication, that are sent for commercial reasons. It is also intended to reduce electronic threats to commerce, including phishing, pharming, malware and spyware.

CASL prohibits the sending of a commercial electronic message (CEM) that promotes or encourages participation in a commercial activity unless specific requirements are met. This means that anyone who sends a CEM must do the following:

  • obtain consent from the recipient first;
  • provide prescribed identification to the recipient: and
  • provide an unsubscribe option on the outgoing message.

Why comply with CASL?

Individuals and organizations found to be in violation of CASL could face significant fines. Everyone must ensure they have done their due diligence to prevent a violation.

Does this include schools?

Yes, because schools often send out electronic newsletters with invitations to special school events like concerts, barbecues, fundraisers, etc.

What does this mean for parents and guardians?

We want to keep parents and guardians informed about what’s happening at schools across the district. Email and other electronic messages are often the best ways to stay in touch. These communications may include information about offers, advertisements or promotions related to school activities such as fundraisers, field trip opportunities, student photos, lunch programs or similar school related activities. If your child’s school has practices in place to communicate with you electronically, please ensure that you have signed and returned a CASL consent form to your child’s school in order to continue to receive these types of communications. You can withdraw your consent at any time by contacting the school principal.

What does this mean for HPEDSB?

Schools, school councils, student councils, trustees and employees must comply with CASL if they send CEMs that encourage participation in a commercial activity. Seeking consent is crucial. School board strategies and mechanisms to ensure compliance are being developed and implemented.

What are examples of school board CEMs?

School board CEMs may include the following:

  • messages to parents, guardians and community members with promotions, advertising or offers of sale such as school pictures, yearbooks, team uniforms or equipment, prom tickets, food programs such as pizza days, field trips and fund raising activities;
  • school newsletters that contain messaging about these types of activities;
  • promotion of community and local business events when they include promotions or offers for sale;
  • emails that redirect the recipient to another website, and forwarded emails that contain commercial content;
  • messages, e-newsletters and advertisements for general interest courses, business partnerships and request for proposals;
  • emails regarding non-board business such as an invitation to sponsor a colleague or offer an item for sale.

Electronic messages that are not of a commercial nature, but are simply for informational purposes (i.e. student progress, notice of a community or school council meeting) do not fall under CASL. Hard copy communications such as newsletters, flyers and letters, faxes and voice messages, even if they contain commercial content, are exempt from the legislation.

What is a commercial activity?

A commercial activity refers to a transaction that is of commercial nature, whether or not there is expectation of profit. A commercial activity includes an offer to purchase, sell or lease products or goods.

Extended French

Why consider Extended French?

Extended French is an effective method of learning another language. Students in Extended French programs communicate in the target language while maintaining fluency in their first language.

Extended French is open to any student starting Grade 5. A successful Extended French student generally demonstrates the following characteristics:

  • Expresses themselves well
  • Has strong skills in their first language
  • Enjoys language activities
  • Has a good memory
  • Is confident
  • Enjoys new challenges
  • Has strong study habits

To find out about your child’s suitability for the program, you may wish to contact your child’s current teacher or the school administrator of the Extended French school in your area. Presently Extended French is offered at York River Public School in Bancroft.

How do I find out more about Extended French?
Parents who want to know more about the program are encouraged to contact York River Public School.

Will my child’s English skills be affected?
Research shows that bilingual children are flexible thinkers and effective problem solvers with a well- developed sense of language. Second language education significantly strengthens first language skills in areas of reading, vocabulary, grammar and communication skills.

Is student transportation available?
No, it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to transport their child to/from school.

How can I support my child even if I don’t speak French?
Parents of Extended French students may have few or no French language skills but can support their child in a variety of ways. To support your child in Extended French:

  • Invest in a good French/English dictionary and a book of verbs
  • Make French books available in the home
  • Expose your child to French outside of school through the arts and French cultural events in the community

Will my child’s English skills be affected?
Research shows that bilingual children are flexible thinkers and effective problem solvers with a well-developed sense of language. Second language education significantly strengthens first language skills in areas of reading, vocabulary, grammar and communication skills.

Is student transportation available?
No, it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to transport their child to/from school.

How can I support my child even if I don’t speak French?
Parents of Extended French students may have few or no French language skills but can support their child in a variety of ways. To support your child in French Immersion:

  • Promote effective study habits
  • Provide a structured learning environment for homework
  • Have your child explain homework and share what he/she has learned
  • Invest in a good French/English dictionary and a book of verbs
  • Make French books available in the home
  • Expose your child to French outside of school through the arts and French cultural events in the community
  • Consider taking a French course for adults
  • Canadian Parents for French

As in any classroom, program support is provided through differentiated instruction. However, more intensive support using Special Education resources is not available in French.

Access & Privacy

Information access and protection of privacy

The following information will provide an understanding and awareness of the access and privacy practices in Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board.

School boards operate under the authority of the Education Act and are governed by legislation that protects the privacy of individuals, specifically the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA) and in some instances the Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA). These Acts give individuals basic access rights and impose various rules on the collection, use and disclosure of personal information within the school board’s custody and control. Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board complies with these laws and is committed to protecting individual privacy while striving to provide an academic program that best meets student’s needs.

Education Act

The Education Act is the provincial law that governs education in Ontario. It enables the school board to operate its business and to deliver programs and services to students. The Education Act authorizes school boards to collect personal information for the purpose of planning and delivering educational programs and services, and for reporting to the Ministry of Education as required. Under the Education Act, the principal of the school is required to compile a student record known as the Ontario Student Record (OSR). This record tracks a student’s academic progress through the Ontario Education system and follows the student when they change schools. Access and use of this record is regulated by the Ontario Student Record (OSR) Guideline 2000.

Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA)

The Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act is the provincial law that requires the protection of personal information and provides individuals with a right of access to public records subject to specific and limited exemptions. The Act also provides specific provisions for how personal information may be collected, used, retained, disclosed and disposed of.

Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA)

The Personal Health Information Protection Act is the provincial law that establishes rules for the collection, use and disclosure of personal health specific information about individuals. In a school board PHIPA applies to speech and language and psychological assessments.

Additional information and resources can also be obtained from the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario (IPC). The IPC Guide to Ontario Legislation Covering the Release of Students’ Personal Information (pdf) provides students, parents and school board staff with a basic understanding of how the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act interacts with the Education Act and other Ontario legislation to protect privacy and provide access to the personal information of students.

Canada's Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL)

Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL)

CASL is Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation which came into effect on July 1, 2014. The purpose of this legislation is to minimize receipt of unsolicited electronic messages, whether in the form of email, text messages, social media or other means of telecommunication, that are sent for commercial reasons. It is also intended to reduce electronic threats to commerce, including phishing, pharming, malware and spyware.

Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation prohibits the sending of a commercial electronic message (CEM) that promotes or encourages participation in a commercial activity unless specific requirements are met. This means that anyone who sends a commercial electronic message must do the following:

  • Obtain consent from the recipient
  • Provide prescribed identification to the recipient
  • Provide an unsubscribe option on the outgoing message

Schools, school councils, student councils, trustees and employees must comply with CASL if they send CEMs that encourage participation in a commercial activity. Seeking consent is crucial. School board strategies and mechanisms to ensure compliance are being developed and implemented.

If you didn’t receive an e-mail from the school asking you to confirm your consent you can do one of the following:

Policies and Procedures

The Board Policy Handbook of the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board is intended to be supplemented by an Administrative Procedures Manual, the primary written document by which the director of education directs staff.

The development of two separate and distinct documents is meant to reinforce the distinction in Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board between the board’s responsibility to govern and the director’s executive or administrative duties.

Administrative Procedures

Administrative Procedures

100 General Administration

200 Educational Programs and Materials

300 Students

400 Personnel and Staff Relations

500 Business Administration

This Administrative Procedures Manual is designed to be the primary written source of administrative direction for the staff of Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board.

There are five categories in which administrative procedures are placed in the Manual. The categories are:

100 General Administration
The general administration procedures deal with system planning, matters that affect the whole district, issues that affect both students and staff members, and community involvement.

200 Educational Programs and Materials These procedures describe school organization, the curriculum, instructional strategies, and curriculum resources.

300 Students
Procedures in this section deal with all student matters. Some examples are school attendance, student welfare and safety, supervision, emergency plans, discipline, student evaluation, reporting to parents, and awards.

400 Personnel and Staff Relations
These procedures deal with any matters related to staff members or volunteers. Procedures describe such issues as hiring of staff, staff records, health and safety, benefits and assistance, professional development, performance appraisal, professional misconduct, and recognition.

500 Business Administration
Business administration procedures relate to budgeting, purchasing, audits, the management and maintenance of all district facilities and property, and student transportation.

A logical flow of procedures is attempted within the categories. For example, criteria for student admission is followed by various supports for student health and well-being, followed by safe schools issues and discipline, and lastly, by evaluation procedures.

Gaps in the numbering sequence facilitate the insertion of additional administrative procedures that may be developed at a future time.

Accommodation reviews

Long-Term Capital and Accommodation Plan, October 2018 (Pdf)

Accommodation Reviews

Accommodation reviews for schools in Belleville, Centre Hastings and Prince Edward County

Background

Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board (HPEDSB) is committed to providing the best educational opportunities while ensuring fiscal responsibility and to enhancing the learning environment in its schools for all students.

From time to time the Board will consider the need to consolidate, close or relocate a school(s) due to changes in curriculum, program demands, student enrolment, community demographics and other factors. In some circumstances these considerations may result in the need to carry out an accommodation review for a school or group of schools. The Board may recommend that an Accommodation Review Committee (ARC) be formed, as outlined in Policy 15: Student Enrolment/School Capacity – Pupil Accommodation Review.

The Board is committed to the following guiding principles:

  • Student achievement and well-being.
  • Effective stewardship of school board resources.
  • Student curriculum and program needs, as well as funding and renewal needs, will drive facility planning.
  • Upgrades to the condition of facilities will occur where feasible.
  • The Board will comply with Ministry of Education guidelines for school consolidation and closure decisions.
  • The Board will exemplify open decision-making, Board oversight and public participation in capital planning.

Approved accommodation reviews

Accommodation reviews have been approved for the Belleville and Madoc areas and a number of schools in Prince Edward County. An accommodation review happens through the school board, with public input, to determine the future of a school or group of schools. Accommodation reviews follow a very specific schedule over about seven months (Pdf).

School board officials will be working with principals to organize accommodation review committees (ARCs) (Pdf) in each area. The ARC is a committee established by the school board that represents the affected school(s) of an accommodation review. The ARC acts as an official conduit for information shared between the school board and the school communities.

Members of an ARC include:

  • the school principal or designate
  • one teacher
  • one non-teaching staff member
  • three parents, one of whom is the school council chair or designate
  • two municipal/business/community members
  • one intermediate or secondary student

  • Recommendation 1: Consolidate Hillcrest School and Prince of Wales Public School at Prince of Wales Public School, effective September 2017. Hillcrest will close at the end of June 2017.
  • Recommendation 2: Consolidate Moira Secondary School and Quinte Secondary School at Moira Secondary School, effective September 2018. Rebrand the consolidated school with a new name and logo. Modify boundaries so that some Quinte students move to Centennial Secondary School in order to ensure an equitable distribution of students for programming purposes. Seek Ministry of Education funding/approval to build a new 9-12 school in Belleville, in consultation with the City of Belleville. Potential locations could include the former Hillcrest School site, current Moira site or another location in east Belleville. If funding/approval for a new school is not approved, seek Ministry of Education funding/approval for an addition/renovation to Moira Secondary School.
  • Recommendation 3: Consolidate Queen Elizabeth Public School (Belleville) and Queen Victoria School, pending submission of a business case to the Ministry of Education seeking funding/approval to build a new K-8 school in Belleville in consultation with the City of Belleville. Potential locations could include the current Queen Elizabeth site or another location in east Belleville. Should funding/approval for a new school not be approved, seek Ministry of Education funding/approval for an addition/renovation to Queen Elizabeth School. Harry J. Clarke Public School students would remain at the current site.
  • Recommendation 4: Relocate Grade 7 and 8 students from Sir John A. Macdonald School to Centennial Secondary School, creating a 7-12 school, effective September 2017.
  • Recommendation 5: Revise attendance boundaries between Sir John A. Macdonald School and Susanna Moodie Elementary School effective September 2018. Families with children registered at Sir John A. Macdonald School will not be impacted by the attendance boundary changes.
  • Recommendation 6: Continue to explore opportunities for community partnerships for the consolidated school(s), including child care opportunities that are aligned with the 2015-2020 Strategic Plan priorities.

Administrative Review

Following the final recommendations by the Board of Trustees, if accommodation review participants believe that the accommodation review did not comply with the board’s policy, they may submit a formal request to the Ministry of Education for an  administrative review of the process. Administrative review requests are considered by the ministry and may be granted if serious deficiencies have been identified and substantiated.

The administrative review is not an assessment of the Board of Trustees’ decision, but of whether the school board’s process followed its pupil accommodation review policy. The report from the administrative review cannot overturn a school board’s decision. The reviewer’s report is given to the Minister of Education who shares it with the Board of Trustees and with the public. It is the Board of Trustees that decides how to proceed in light of the review.

A request for an administrative review for Quinte Secondary School was filed with the Ministry of Education by July 19, 2017 (within the required 30-day timeframe).

Below is the HPEDSB response with links to appendices.

Community planning and partnerships

Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board (HPEDSB) welcomes community use of school and community partnerships in support of healthy, active lifestyles and sustainable, vibrant communities. The school board’s first responsibility is to ensure student safety and well-being, and to support student achievement.

Cooperative and collaborative partnerships are part of the foundation of a strong, vibrant and sustainable public education system. Partnerships can strengthen the role of the schools in communities, provide a place for programs, facilitate the coordination of, and improve access to, services for students and the broader community.

Programs in place at several schools include the following:

Opportunities for facility partnerships can be considered when HPEDSB is considering the use of unoccupied space in schools, doing significant renovations at schools, or building new schools.

Procedure 570: Community Planning and Partnership (Pdf) describes the process for establishing a facility partnership with community organizations. It outlines the specifics for partnerships in new and existing facilities where students are taught, and for effectively sharing planning information with community organizations. This procedure is based on the Ministry of Education Community Planning and Partnerships Guideline, 2015.

As per Procedure 570, a public meeting will be held annually to discuss potential planning and facility partnership opportunities with the public and community organizations and to exchange information with interested partners about available space and/or potential co-build projects.

Expression of Interest for facility partnership and co-build opportunity specific to the Queen Elizabeth Belleville School, location at 135 Macdonald Avenue, Belleville, Ontario will be accepted up until December 21, 2018. Interested childcare partners complete the Community Planning and Partnership, Expression of Interest Form.
